{mallows}


You asked so here it is. Yummy Homemade Marshmallows. Seriously, these make for the best cup of hot chocolate ever. Enjoy!
Ingredients:
.75 oz unflavored gelatin {3 envelopes Knox gelatin}
1/2 C cold water
2 C granulated sugar
2/3 C light corn syrup
1/4 C water
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
Line a 9x9 pan with plastic wrap and lightly oil it. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 C cold water. Soak for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 C water in small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil and let boil hard for 1 minute.
Pour the boiling mixture into soaked gelatin and turn on the mixer, using the whisk attachment, to high speed. Add the salt and beat for 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes, add in the vanilla extract. Beat to incorporate.
Scrape the marshmallow mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly. {Lightly greasing your hands and spatula will help a lot}
Take another piece of lightly oiled plastic wrap and press lightly on top of the marshmallows, creating a seal.
Let mixture sit for a few hours, or overnight, until cooled and firmly set.
In a shallow dish, combine equal parts cornstarch and confectioners' sugar. Remove marshmallow form pan and cut into equal pieces with scissors or a chef's knife. Dredge each piece for marshmallow in the confectioners' sugar mixture.
Store in an airtight container.
Makes about 40 large marshmallows depending on the size you cut them.
It probably looks a lot harder than it actually is. Don't let it intimidate you!
